Vice President Joseph Nyumah Boakai has called on the student community to avoid vandalism, dishonesty and violent demonstration, and instead to be tolerant, humble and honest in their dealings with each other.Speaking to hundreds of students under the banner, “National Students Movement for Boakai” on September 23 in the auditorium of the College of West Africa, VP Boakai noted that some students have participated in vandalism, violent demonstrations and cheated; and they must change their attitudes if they want a better Liberia.The two-day conference was organized by the National Students’ Movement, and the vice president was invited to share his life story with students from different schools across the country.He narrated that he was the fifth born of his mother, as his name Nyumah connotes in his ethnic Kissi tradition; that he did not find life easy and had to work diligently; and was even humiliated when he lived with some relatives.He however recounted that during those difficult days, his food was placed in a defecating bucket, that he would fill drums with water every morning before going to school. He said he dropped out of school at Grade 8 to teach and solicit funds to continue his education, adding that he also had to tap rubber in Firestone and ate leftover food from friends.In spite of those circumstances, the Vice President maintained that he remained determined, which contrasted the saying that “A person is not a product of their circumstances, but a product of their decisions.”He urged the students not to see themselves as the only ones going through difficulties, but should remember that many successful people today experienced tough times, even more than them.VP Boakai also told the students to stop cheating in exams and avoid giving bribes to teachers, noting, “You have to build confidence in others of what you can do, and not to get them wonder why you should be appointed to a position of trust having known your academic shortcoming.”He indicated that many Liberians are accustomed to deceitful practices especially in financial transactions, and that is what they feel can aid them to succeed in life.“There is no day in my life I ever lobbied for a job, but I am given a job on the basis of competence that the employer sees in me. Since I became Vice President, I have worked for eleven years without a vacation. I built the house in which I am living in five years ago, and I’m pleased to be in it because I do not want to get money that does not belong to me,” he emphasized.It may be recalled that in 2012, Vice President Boakai, in a keynote address at the graduation ceremony at the University of Liberia, said many students who are involved in cheating have the equal determination to pursue careers that they do not have the IQ for.He said corruption scandals are reported in public and private sectors, mainly in the banks, where those involved were graduates from the UL Business College, particularly those with first degrees in Accounting, Economics, Public Administration and Management.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Dr Boateng Wiafe and nurse from Ghana, along with doctor and administrator of the Port Mourant Hospital, Dr Devendra Radhay handing over the certificate of appreciationA doctor and nurse visiting from Ghana have conducted 22 cataract surgeries at the National Ophthalmology Hospital (NOH) at Port Mourant, Corentyne.According to the Doctor in Charge at the hospital, Dr Devendra Radhay, the duo – Dr Boateng Wiafe and the accompanying nurse – were here for three days during which time they performed the surgeries.Benefiting from the work of the Ghanaian team were patients from Berbice and as far away as the communities of Orealla and Orima. When the Department of Public Information (DPI) visited the hospital, patients were seen being taken care of by the staff attached to the NOH.Khaymattie Gharbarana of Tain, Port Mourant, was the first patient to have her cataract surgery done at the NOH for the year 2019. “Nothing but happiness and the joy is what I have to express,” Gharbarana said following her surgery.Naline Boodhu and Manita Mangal of Number 59 and Number 66 Villages, Corriverton respectively, were both diagnosed with cataracts in their left eyes in 2015. However, they, were unable to conduct the surgeries due to the conditions at the NOH at that time.Rajdai Gridharry, 74, of Number 19 Village, had successful surgery to remove cataract in her left eye in 2015. However, one year later she was diagnosed with the same illness in her right eye. “It bothered me a lot when I could not see clearly even with the glasses so I am thankful for this opportunity to have the other surgery done now, I was so happy when I received the call from the doctor in charge of the hospital to come to get my surgery done.”Parbattie Jagmohan, 73, of Liverpool Village, Corentyne, noted that she received her diagnosis a year ago and like the others, the cataract was found in her left eye. According to Jagmohan, she was a bit nervous the first day which saw a spike in her blood pressure, so she was encouraged to return home and visit the following day when she was calmer.Also, among the patients who successfully completed their surgeries was Reddie Cobis. The 75-year-old Cobis who hails from Orima Village was contacted by Dr Radhay, inviting him to travel to Berbice in order to have his eye surgery done. Cobis complimented the doctors and nurses attached to the Port Mourant Hospital. Dr Radhay told DPI that a team from “New Horizon” is slated to commence further more surgeries. According to the doctor in charge, it is expected that this will make an immense dent in the current backlog of close to 800 cases. However, it was noted that the list has not been updated in a while and the names of persons who may have passed away or had their surgeries done remain on the list.Following this, he further noted that medical teams from the Sai Baba and the Medical Relief team will also be performing additional cataract surgeries, as well as working along with doctors attached to the hospital to lay the foundation for the facility to be able to perform at least 20 surgeries per month after their departure.
A super slimmer is proving to be a winner at the losing game after shedding almost 8st and being named St Eunan’s Letterkenny Slimming World ‘Miss Slinky’ 2016. Well known local florist Caroline Alcorn won the title, which was awarded to the member of the St Eunans GAA Clubhouse Slimming World group because of her magnificent weight loss.She says her weight loss has changed her life. “I feel like a new woman since losing weight – in fact, I look so different that people who I haven’t seen for a while often can’t believe I’m the same person. People come into the shop and don’t recognise me, I often get asked if I am Caroline’s younger sister or daughter.“For me though it’s the change on the inside that’s been the biggest – I’m happier, healthier and much more confident.”After hearing about it from a friend,Caroline decided to join her local Slimming World group at St Eunan’s GAA Clubhouse.The old Caroline.She said “Walking through those doors was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, I didn’t know what to expect. I needn’t have worried though, everyone there was so friendly especially my Consultant Catherine and I was so relieved when I found out that my weight was confidential between me and her – I’d had visions of having to tell everyone how much I weighed! “Since then I’ve made so many friends at the group and I honestly don’t think I could have done it without their support each week. They helped me with recipes and tips and if I was ever struggling they were always there to remind me why I’d wanted to lose weight in the first place and how far I’d come since first stepping through the doors.”Caroline followed the club’s Food Optimising eating plan and found ways to make her favourite Chicken Casserole Slimming World friendly.She says: “People think slimming means going hungry, eating nothing but salad or obsessively counting every calorie you eat, but it’s not like that at all at Slimming World. I love food and it’s never once felt like I was on ‘a diet’ – in fact, people are always surprised at how much food I have on my plate and can’t believe I’m losing weight eating so much delicious food and without ever feeling hungry.“I still enjoy all my favourite meals like burgers and chips and roast dinners but I’ve learned how to make small changes like using lean meat or cooking with low calorie spray instead of oil or butter. It fits in really well with my busy life.”Now Caroline has lost a total of 7st 10lb and gone done so many dress sizes she has had to get a whole new wardrobe. She even got invited into local boutique Pure Occasional wear for a mini makeover and photo shoot to celebrate her fabulous weight loss.She also more active nowadays, going to the gym and swimming pool, leaving her with much more energy to run and play with her nieces and nephews.Catherine, who runs the St Eunan GAA Clubhouse Slimming World group, says the changes seen in Caroline are incredible.“I hope her success will inspire other people in Letterkenny who’d like to lose weight by forming new lifestyle habits and become happier and healthier to take action. There’s a warm welcome waiting at Slimming World and, just think, if you start today you could feel like a completely new person just like Caroline.” Caroline is blooming marvellous after amazing weight loss! was last modified: July 31st, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Caroline AlcorndonegalletterkennySlimming World
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsThe study by Wong and Harvard University Professor Francis Shen looks at mayor-run school districts in Chicago, New York, Boston, Baltimore, Cleveland and Washington, D.C. The researchers compare those districts with others in their respective states, and with each other. Among their conclusions: Achievement test scores improve at the elementary level. A mayor can better lobby for intergovernmental resources so financial management of the district improves. A mayor also is better able to engage civic and business groups, making education a public priority. Students in school districts run by mayors do better academically, says a groundbreaking new study by researchers at Brown and Harvard universities, bolstering Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s campaign to take over Los Angeles’ public schools. The study looks at all urban districts in the nation under mayoral control between 1999 and 2003. It concludes that those districts showed greater improvement than traditionally run school systems because of greater accountability and higher public confidence in the education system. “We believe that mayoral control actually can enhance the overall district well-being, not only in financial terms, but also in terms of the focus on accountability,” said co-author Kenneth Wong, an Annenberg professor in education policy at Brown University. “The challenge in Los Angeles is dropouts and a very diverse student population with a lot of immigrants coming in with language and cultural barriers. The mayor’s office is in a better position to coordinate a lot of the municipal services to make them support schools and learning.” Villaraigosa’s office said the study underscores his primary reason for wanting to take control of Los Angeles Unified. “Looking at over 100 urban districts, they found that mayors are, in fact, more successful at increasing student achievement,” said Villaraigosa’s press deputy Diana Rubio. “These findings support our belief that a mayor can be more effective by instilling a common vision in the schools, by bringing together the services and resources of an entire community to support the schools, and by holding people accountable for the results.” But officials with Los Angeles Unified disagreed sharply with the study, which is still ongoing. They maintain that the circumstances that prompted mayoral takeover of other districts are dramatically different than the situation in Los Angeles. They note that LAUSD has a large population of minority students and serves 27 cities, not just one. And they also say that Superintendent Roy Romer, a former Colorado governor, and the elected school board have made significant advances and will continue to do so. “The focused curriculum, the improved bond ratings, the improvement in student achievement level and the coherence of the district are all exactly what’s been achieved at L.A. Unified under Romer control, who’s (been) a governor, not a mayor. “So we’ve done it at one level higher than the corrupt cities on the East Coast,” board member David Tokofsky said. “When you hit rock bottom like Cleveland, Chicago, New York and other cities, you ought to be willing to try mayoral control, governor control, or even turning your schools over to the French government. “But L.A. doesn’t fit the prerequisites that justify that.” While there have been case studies on the impact of changing governance at individual school districts, the Wong-Shen study, “Mayors Improving Student Achievement,” is believed to be the first that compares all urban districts under mayoral control. “They’re the only scholars trying to empirically connect mayoral takeover to student test score gains or losses. There is nobody else working on this and they have been working on it for over four years,” said Michael Kirst, professor of education at Stanford University who has studied mayoral control and testified before the Joint Commission on LAUSD Governance. “This is an objective source. They don’t have any stake in this.” The difficulty in studying mayoral control of schools is determining the various factors that could prompt achievement gains in order to evaluate whether the change in governance made a difference, Kirst said. One key weakness in the study is the authors’ acknowledgment that they could not determine whether minority students’ achievement was significantly raised by mayoral-led governance, Kirst said. The study is more of an “initial probe” than a “definitive and conclusive study” on the impact of mayoral control of school districts, Kirst said. Nearly 74 percent of Los Angeles Unified students are Latino and 41 percent are English-language learners. “They’re looking at Chicago, Boston, where the minority is predominantly African-American, and the English-learner issue is huge in Los Angeles,” Kirst said. “I think it’s provocative, but not at all conclusive for Los Angeles. “This study has nothing in it about the mayoral impact on Latino achievement or achievement of English learners, which are major issues in Los Angeles.” Wong conceded that while the new report does not deal with the minority issue, he’s conducted other studies in which those scoring in the bottom 20 percent in academic performance progressed more rapidly when the district was under mayoral control. “Improvement for the system as a whole is going to drive the improvement among minority groups,” Wong said. “When you have an elected school board, they’re going to deal with their own constituency, and because of political disenfranchisement, inner-city residents … oftentimes are neglected and left behind. But because of mayoral control, the mayor would have to deal with the schools that are not performing.” The study also notes that mayoral control is “designed for” large urban districts in which city and district boundaries overlap. Veteran school board member Julie Korenstein, an outspoken opponent of mayoral takeover, said discounted the results of the study, citing Los Angeles’ unique situation. “It’s a real stretch to compare L.A. Unified with its 27 cities to a New York City with one mayor and one school district,” Korenstein said. “I’d like to see another school district that has 300,000 students who are learning to speak English, 96 languages spoken and 85,000 learning-disabled students. “I’m very open to suggestions and different ways to educate children,” she said. “But I have to have a study that relates to L.A. Unified specifically.” email@example.com (818) 713-3722160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

The magical kelp forest exhibit at Cape Town’s Two Oceans Aquarium. Image: Two Oceans Aquarium By Lorraine Kearney11 June 2014The cold and wet weather has finally settled over the peninsula, and Capetonians have bedded down for their annual hibernation. In summer, the days are gloriously long, and families eat dinner after eight, children stay up til after nine – because the sun hasn’t set yet.But come winter, with its short, wet and cold days, and the town catches up on its zzzz’s. Dinner by 6.30pm, in bed before eight, and the drive to school in the morning is in the dark. Seaside towns are always dreary in the rain.But for those few hours of daylight, finding fun when it is pouring outside heads the list of important things to do in my family. Top draw is the Two Oceans Aquarium at the V&A Waterfront – and it never gets tired.First stop has always got to be the giant spider crabs, where we spend ages trying to spy the faces of the samurai warriors on their bellies.Legend tells of a great Japanese sea battle, in which a young emperor, seeing that his army was defeated, threw himself into the water with his samurai warriors. The emperor and his soldiers turned into crabs and have been wandering the floor of the ocean ever since.Spider crabs are the largest crustaceans in the world; males grow to about 1m in length with a 4m leg stretch. They live about 400m under water that is pretty cool – between 11°C and 14°C. Very little is known about giant spider crabs. It is virtually impossible to determine their age and we do not know when they reach sexual maturity. They have to moult when they grow, shuffling off their old exo-skeletons. This is a complicated and potentially life-threatening process which can take up to two days. A crab can become entrapped in its old shell and die, but even if the moult is successful, the sheer effort is sometimes so exhausting, that the crab dies soon afterwards.Other favourite stops are the touch and feel tidal pools and the microscope displays. But really, the highlight every time is the penguins – they are irresistible, waddling around in their tuxedos. Check when you arrive to make sure you get there for feeding time. You’ll be glad you did.And if you’re game, you can even go scuba diving with the ragged tooth sharks – without a cage.After strolling around the aquarium, we highly recommend the short trip to the V&A Market on the Wharf. There’s a whole world of food on offer, from Hungarian street food to fried chicken, vegetarian curries to cakes and muffins, really good coffee to freshly juiced fruit and veggie drinks. It’s open every day except Christmas and New Year’s, meaning you can always get something delicious to eat.Outside the market – for that gap in the rain when fresh air is needed – is Nobel Square. Four larger-than-life bronzed statues stand in a row, all of them South African Nobel Peace Prize laureates: Albert Luthuli, Desmond Tutu, FW de Klerk and Nelson Mandela. Home happy and tired; job done.Read more about what to do in Cape Town on SouthAfrica.info
